  1. OK so I went out tonight after tea and logged it again, and added and deleted the parameters accordingly. There is no parameters for FBKC, gear ( my car is 5 speed auto ), fuel tank pressure, or EGR steps. I found and added the CPC, and added 2 other ones I thought may be useful ( the last 2 in columns Y and Z )? I cruised along the surburban roads to the motorway, the first on ramp was wasted because of sleepyhead in front, so I did 3 more on-ramps and gave it a good rev out to 6000rpm ( been a very long time since it's been anywhere near that high!! ), then off the motorway and cruise back home. So hopefully there is some good data there which can tell us something. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lXS34SoL9a_1-nQw9aQnqMP-QGeJEQYK/view?usp=sharing The thing I've noticed when I had the Nexus in the car and could see the IAM live, when it's sitting at whatever number, any time I drove the car any harder than absolute grandma, even if I drive the car just totally normally ( not giving it any beans but not taking all day either ), the IAM always took a massive dive instantly. As you can see on tonight's log, the IAM is at 0.000. What happens if it wants to take even more timing out? Can it go negative? Or does it just display 0.000 and then keep taking timing out anyway if it wants to?
  2. I was looking for the FBKC but couldn't see it, maybe I need to look harder. I'll try to do another run tonight and get rid of the parameters not needed and try to find the other ones you have suggested. Thanks for your continuing help and advice
  3. Went for a drive this afternoon and logged the parameters you said ( hope I got them all ). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Tp6dKQKqofP49Tc_COpUk2rCWzXBdbi6/view?usp=sharing
  4. Oh ok so I should log it with RomRaider like before when we did the AVCS solenoid? I will try to do that on the weekend. Won't have the intake crack fixed by them though.
  5. I couldn't find Feedback Knock Correction or Fine Knock Correction on the BtSsm. Is the FKC value Feedback Knock COrrection? What is FLKC? Anyway, does this below tell you anything?

  6. I think the BtSsm is reading the IAM correctly, as there is always a long list of knock events on the tab next to the "LV" at the top right of the screen. I might get some of those off and post up so you can see. It doesn't look right to me, as they are quite often as low revs or low load yet it reckons it is pinging it's head off. As far as I can tell and hear, there are not rattles of loose things, either at idle with the bonnet up, or driving along with the window down trying to hear anything. So I really don't know. @ajayel do you know if the 3.6 litre motors have these problems?
  7. Latest log. Been a few weeks since I put in the new solenoid and reset the ECU. About the only thing I've noticed is it seems to start a little quicker when cold, otherwise it's still got about as much go as a 3 legged donkey with a limp.... BtSsm_LV_20200612_1515 by JAFA851, on Flickr Just checked the airbox at the back of the engine, and there is a small crack in it. What's best to fix that with, some epoxy smoothed over the joint? 20200614_111457 by JAFA851, on Flickr
  8. With staff and service to match
  9. Interested to know how this changed the logged knock. Do you think it was quite clogged up and limiting the fuel flow enough fo it to run a bit lean and then knock?
  10. It's very frustrating, it's such a nice car, but let down by the engine running issues. Like you, I run my car on the same brand ( Mobil ) 98 all the time, yet the IAM moves around quite a lot. I don't have the gear to do a leak down test. I maintain the car regularly myself, always use Castrol 10W40 semi synthetic oil and genuine filters. I use genuine parts all over the car ( hello Partsouq ) I will check the plastic air chamber on the weekend to see if it's cracked. I cleaned the whole underneath of the car with a paintbrush and a toothbrush before shipping it to Australia, and got all the stones out of everywhere. The car had a rattle at certain low speed prior, but now it has gone so I'm hopinig it was the stones I cleared out of everywhere. I also made sure the steel guards were tight so they should be good. I might get a new fuel filter and strainer next time I order from Partsouq. I'm going to do a thermostat and radiator cap and full flush and new coolant before next summer too.
  11. So maybe it's just me but I thought the car felt a bit more peppy yesterday. It's had a week since the ECU reset, and a good run down the motorway along with the normal city driving. So I plugged in romraider just now, and the IAM is.... 0.1875 😣 You can't tell me that every single H6 outside of Japan is running this badly with all the timing pulled out of it? Would chucking in some octane booster ( as a trial, to prove the octane is too low and it's not something else ) be likely to improve things? I struggle to believe I should have to pay hundreds to get a totally stock well maintained engine remapped just so it'll run as advertised. Does anyone know if the newer 3.6 litre H6's run like this? or is it only a 3.0 litre thing? And if so, what is different about a 3.6, it must be the ECU map?
  12. Thanks for that Caleb. A bit or reading for during the week for me. I can't use BtSsm at the moment because the Nexus shat itself and I can't be bothered trying to resurrect it.I've ordered a new 2 din Android 10 unit which I'll install in the same place as the Nexus was ( in between the 2 air vents in the dash above the stereo ) and then I'll be able to run BtSsm on that. I run the car on 98 all the time, so hopefully it should minimise any knock. Now you've said the engine needs to be driven through all rpm and load points makes sense, I hadn't given it much jandel. This afternoon when I was out I gave it a boot down the motorway on-ramp so that should have helped it a bit? 99% of the time the car is lucky to see 2000rpm......maybe I need to drive it a bit harder.
  13. The IAM is still at 0.500 on RR logger
  14. OK so I did all this no worries. Plugged the laptop into the car, and now it says "Retrieving A/F Learning ranges... Error performing Learning Table Values read. Check the following: "Logger has successfully connected to the ECU "Correct COM port is selected ( if not Openport 2 ) "Cable is connected properly "Ignition is ON I'm sitting her with the engine running, and it's all connected properly because I can see the rpm and battery voltage current values changing in the logging section. So not sure why it isn't working??
  15. I just tried to do the LV log as above, but it came up " ECU definition file not found or undefined. Learning Table Values cannot be properly retrieved until an ECU definition is defined in the Editor's Definition Manager" So ( in plain English 😁 ) how do I do that?
